I’ve been on a virtual book tour since my debut historical novel Up the Hill to Home came out on 28 April. I’ve met lots of people online and on the air, and had a great time without needing to hit the road. Many thanks to the folks who interviewed me, invited me to guest post on their blog, reviewed the book, featured the book, and made the book available to their readers. Thanks especially to all the readers who were interested enough to sign up to win hardcover, paperback, and ebook editions of Up the Hill to Home, and congratulations to those who won!
